After speaking with Erik ten Hag, Christian Eriksen has decided to sign a three-year contract with Manchester United. The move of the Denmark midfielder, who spent the final four months of the previous season at Brentford and is out of contract, is subject to a physical. A verbal agreement has been struck.
Eight months after experiencing a heart episode at Euro 2020, Eriksen made a comeback in February, and Brentford had wanted to keep him. However, the 30-year-old has chosen United and informed both teams of his choice on Monday.
During his 10 starts and one substitute appearance for Brentford in the Premier League, the former Tottenham player made an impression, scoring once and dishing out four assists. On Monday, United was also on the verge of finalizing the acquisition of Feyenoord’s Tyrell Malacia at left-back. Malacia, a Netherlands international, has just finished his medical.
Cristiano Ronaldo, who wants to leave Old Trafford, missed his scheduled return to preseason practice due to family obligations. The 37-year-desire old’s to depart is motivated by dissatisfaction with United’s summer signings, despite United’s continued insistence that he is not for sale.
Eriksen played for Spurs for six and a half seasons before joining Internazionale, which released him in December due to Italian regulations prohibiting players with implantable cardioverter defibrillators from competing (ICD). Immediately following his cardiac arrest, he was given one.
